Start your weekend off right with this weekly series! Here are your Weekend Links!

Guys, I have been doing a lot of work on the ol’ blog. I have rebranded, which ended up being a BIG project. I have a new direction and so much energy! I can’t wait to share with you some of the big things I have in store, including this new Weekend Links series!

Here are a collection of fun things I’ve discovered this week! Enjoy!

  1. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and I can’t think of a more adorable couple than Chip and Joanna Gaines. The Gaines shared their Valentine’s Day Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake recipe with People Magazine this week. So yummy, so adorable.
  2. Speaking of Valentine’s Day, here’s a note for my husband. In lieu of flowers, I will accept a bouquet of these rose cupcakes. I worked in an office where people traveled internationally and it was a tradition to bring back candy from wherever you went. THAT is how I fell in love with rose flavored things. Am I alone in this? Srsly, I need those cupcakes.
  3. Have you bumped into the recent internet obsession, hygge? Basically, hygge is a Dutch word that means you allow all things cozy into your life, especially at wintertime, but there is a lot of chatter right now about what hygge is/is not. The New Yorker article “Is This Hygge?” by Susanna Wolff gave me a chuckle.
  4. And, as someone who works from home, The New Yorker article “I Work from Home” by Colin Nissan was funny but also a little too accurate. I’m wearing slippers. When did I put on these slippers? I can’t remember.
  5. I just finished reading The Husband’s Secret (affiliate link) by Liane Moriarty this week, and I really enjoyed it! I kicked off 2017 by reading Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 (affiliate link), which was a heavy read. I wanted my second book to be an entertaining page turner that I couldn’t put down. The Husband’s Secret did not disappoint! I was hooked to the very last page!
  6. Are you wanting to memorize more scripture this year? I love this new series by Carried Away Ministries, 11 Bible Verses to Grow in Your Faith in 2017. Each scripture verse helps delve deeper into a different name of God. There’s even a freebie printable notecard!
  7. And lastly, an encouraging link for all you mamas in the trenches. You’re not alone.

Note: this post contains affiliate links, which means, at no extra cost to you, I am given compensation. I only promote products that I would use myself. Thank you.
